Thank you to all those who submitted abstracts for papers for the September conference. The range of subjects, and the areas and languages covered, promise that the conference will truly reflect the global nature of the conflict, and take us beyond both the Western Front and the Armistice and Treaty of Versailles. The backslapping over, now comes the business of putting together the programme for the conference. While we will be giving precedence to those selected papers that arrived before 21st March, we may hold open a couple of slots for late developments, and to allow for unforeseen withdrawals (we accept that these things happen).
In the meantime we offer you pictures of people waiting and wondering; we promise we’ll get decisions out soon, in fact ‘toot the sweet’ (and the tooter the sweeter).
And of course, Easter greetings.
